Samsung’s new Galaxy Note 7 has what industry sources claim is the best smartphone display to date. Offering a beautiful 5.7-inch AMOLED screen that is crisp and clear, breaks records in terms of brightness, and is just excellent overall. With that in mind we wanted to go over a few reasons we think the Galaxy Note 7 display beats the iPhone 6s Plus.
Of course comparing Samsung to Apple can go a lot of different ways. From the specs, software, battery, camera, Android vs iOS and more. Rather than repeat a silly argument we’ve all heard a thousand times, we’re simple sharing some things that make the Note 7 display stand out above the competition.
This year the Galaxy Note 7 has a lot to offer. From software features like an Always-On display, to hardware improvements of pinpoint accuracy for the S-Pen stylus, extreme brightness during outdoor use, to the best viewing angles, wide color accuracy and a new mode for night-time use. There’s a lot to like here, and multiple reasons users will love the Galaxy Note 7.
With each release of Galaxy smartphones Samsung improves the display technology by a considerable amount. The Galaxy S7 won awards for the best smartphone display ever, and before that it was the Note 5. However, the image specialists at DisplayMate conclude that the Note 7 is the best to date and isn’t just better again, but completely leapfrogs the previous generation.
When it comes to comparing these two displays there are a lot of things to consider. For one, Samsung uses S-AMOLED screens vs LCD in the iPhone. These each have advantages, not to mention users have their own specific preferences. Apple’s iPhone has also been praised for having the best LCD display on the market, so it’s certainly no slouch, and everyone can agree the iPhone has an excellent screen.
Of course everything is subjective here, but when we consider everything Samsung has done with the Galaxy Note 7 from the curved edges to the Always-On display, it’s easy to see why it’s already winning awards before the phone has even been released. With that in mind, here’s five things that make the Note 7 display great, and what makes it better than the iPhone.
